Breathtaking the third time

Awesome fan vaulting, phenomenal stained glass windows, airy and light feeling. Go and just sit for a while to absorb it all.

Fairly OK inside. Seemed like an overpriced tourist trap. Needs guided tours included but nothing like that happened when I went in there.

I am lucky enough to know one of the Fellows of Kings College and was invited to go up on the roof of the chapel. This might seem a bit of a strange thing to do, but each corner tower, for want of a better description, is a winding staircase that take you up to the inner ceiling and then... More

The chapel will take your breath away when you walk inside it. The ceiling is exquisite, the stained glass windows are stunning. Having seen the chapel from the front street and the River Cam, visiting it was a must. The grounds are well kept and nice to stroll around. It is a shame you can't see inside any. The one... More

This chapel is a must see! The stained glass is a marvel to experience especially on a sunny day. Our visit was made even more special by having the choir sing for this evening service.

Sublime chapel, and vespers were simply magical. Highly recommended. Beautiful to walk around the grounds too - the backs are stunning. Iconic Cambridge chapel.

Bought our ticket from the Kings college visitor center. Opening time at 9.30am. Very friendly staff. The visit was stunning. Unfortunately we didn't have any tour guide which is really useful for this visit . Beautiful garden too

Indeed I went there during 2013 summer for study tour. I was enchanted with Gothic Architecture, and the King"s College Chapel must be the greatest representative of perpendicular Gothic. In addition, I have been to the orchestra concert in the King"s College Chapel. The resonance by the high ceiling and the solumn feel made that one of the most enjoyable... More

Very beautiful chapel and very detail explanation on the exhibition to talk about the history of the building of the chapel which also shows the history of UK during the building period. Really worth the visit.
